Radio America is an American radio network specializing in conservative-oriented talk programming. A division of The American Studies Center, the network describes its mission as "to produce and syndicate quality radio programs reflecting a commitment to traditional American values, limited government and the free market." The American Studies Center has funded special broadcast projects at Radio America , such as a documentary series on African American conservatives, and conservative programming like "The Alan Keyes Show","What's the Story? With Fred Barnes", "Common Sense Radio with Oliver North","Bob Barr's Laws of the Universe","Veterans Chronicles with Gene Pell","The G. Gordon Liddy Show","The Michael Reagan Show","The Greg Knapp Experience", and "Dateline Washington with Greg Corombos."

Radio America programming airs on CRN Digital Talk Radio Networks, with its own dedicated channel, CRN5 (Greg Knapp is not carried on CRN due to a schedule conflict with Lou Dobbs's radio show).

History

Radio America was founded in 1985 by the President, James C. Roberts. Since then Radio America has been providing stations across the nation with news, talk, documentary and short-features programming.

Since its inception, Radio America has won a host of awards including the New York International Radio Festivals Gold and Silver medals, the ABA Silver Gavel, Gabriel, Ohio State, Freedom Foundation and many others. In 1997, Radio America achieved full network status, broadcasting 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Programs are broadcast via three satellites and over 500 affiliates carry their programs. In addition, the network's programs are now available on the Internet through RealAudio. Radio America programs generally reflect the network's adherence to standard conservative ideas, like limited government and the free market. News and talk features predominate on weekdays, while weekends offer a varied menu of special programs ranging from home finance to sports and from medical advice to politics.
